DONG Energy and Siemens AG have entered into agreements securing potential
supplies and servicing of a total of 154 offshore wind turbines of 6 MW each, giving a total capacity of 924 MW. The turbines are based on gearless direct-drive technology and have a 154-meter rotor.

The agreements give DONG Energy the option to install the turbines on its Gode Wind projects in Germany from 2015. Utilization of the potential supplies and services under the agreements is subject to official approvals for the specific projects and DONG Energy making a positive investment decision for the projects.

Following the acquisition of the ownership interest in the Gode Wind projects in August 2012, DONG Energy invited tenderers for the supply of offshore turbines, and Siemens AG responded and won the agreements.

“By 2020, we want to have installed 6,500 MW of offshore wind power compared to the 1,700 MW we have already built,” says Samuel Leupold, executive vice president of DONG Energy Wind Power. “The agreements with Siemens AG are an important step toward meeting that target. I am therefore pleased we have completed the tender and concluded agreements for the turbines.”
